Here we are with 2 hours till kickoff from the second NFL playoff game today. By now you're probably working-up quite the appetite from sitting so much and watching the boob-tube. Don't worry this is normal, remain calm. I am posting just what you need to eat. Not that you are going to pull yourself away to make this concoction, I just wanted to show you an example of what a great game-day snack looks like. This is the perfect bean dip in every way. Lots of cheese and it utilizes one of my favorite sausages, Chorizo. It takes about an hour to make, so maybe you can still whip it up in time. If not, perhaps you can convince someone else in the house to. The only thing you have to be careful of is not eating the whole thing in one sitting.
